MiCOM Agile P441, P442 & P444
Distance Protection Relays
Part of the MiCOM P40 platform, the Agile P441, P442 and P444 numerical full scheme distance relays provide flexible, fast and reliable protection of transmission and sub-transmission lines. They include full scheme 6-zone distance, plus aided directional earth fault (DEF) and comprehensive backup protection for utility lines and cables at all voltage levels, particularly oriented towards transmission grids.
These distance protection systems are ideal for single circuit breaker application, single and/or 3-pole tripping, and includes a full suite of monitoring, control and recording capabilities plus fault locator, autoreclose and check synchronism.
Enhanced Ethernet board module with switchable Ethernet redundancy delivered in a single model.
The new board module is supported on P442 and P444, also delivered along with the NERC CIP v6 Cybersecurity release, software 91.
It supports PRP, HSR and RSTP in one model, allowing a single P40 model to be used in any application requiring redundant Ethernet communications.
The new module is designed to handle high density traffic in the IEC 61850-8-1 network, with time latency halved. Larger architecture digital substations can also be supported, with up to 50 nodes now possible in IEC 62439 HSR rings.
Key Features & Benefits:
The Agile P441, P442 and P444 have a settable quadrilateral operating characteristic that offers consistent 0.85-1.1 cycle zone 1 operating time for general distance application. Customers have a choice of cost-effective built-in teleprotection with InterMiCOM, to implement permissive, blocking and intertripping schemes.
The IEC 61850 redundant Ethernet option offers RSTP and IEC 62439 PRP/HSR – with the HSR support extending for up to 50 nodes in a station bus ring.

MiCOM S1 Agile
Engineering Tool Suite
S1 Agile is the truly universal PC tool for MiCOM Agile relay, assemble all tools in a palette for simple entry, with intuitive navigation via fewer mouse-clicks. No-longer are separate tools required for redundant Ethernet configuration, phasor measurement unit commissioning, busbar scheme operational dashboards, programmable curve profiles or automatic disturbance record extraction – applications are embedded. MiCOM S1 Agile supports all existing MiCOM, K-Series and Modulex, including a utility for automatic conversion of setting files from previous generations of numerical relays like K-series and MiCOM P20 to the latest P40 Agile models.

Refurbishment Solutions – “If It’s Blue Think to Renew”
GE’s latest MiCOM P440 series models P441 to P444 inclusive offer an ideal path to refurbish an older installed base of MiCOM P440 relays. Whether those older products were initially sold as Alstom or AREVA-branded products, newer models retain pin-pin refurbishment capability. Advantageously, users can benefit from the advancements made in protection, control, communications, hardware and cybersecurity that have taken place in the intervening years. The new P40 retains form, fit and function compatibility but delivers the latest platform and software ready for today’s environment, and for future-proofed application for the decades ahead.
